    Good. Maybe mom will quit forwarding me stories about Obama being the anti Christ.

    Maybe FB could also censor all the stupid clickbait that I see and that I get in my timeline. It's getting ridiculous.

    Does this mean I can't post any more Onion articles? The comments are always great when people fall for it. I wouldn't exactly call Snopes an unbiased fact checker though.

    -OR- Folks could substantially enrich their lives by disconnecting from the fascist website that is "The Facebook".

    I know, I know...it's the "only" way to keep up with your best friends and your family. Because we all know that before 2005, there was no way to see what your 3rd cousin from your Mom's 7th marriage had for dinner last night. Meh.

    Through the years, I have made decisions that have had positive and negative results. I would like to think that I have had more positive decisions than negative, but what I *do* know was that kicking Facebook to the curb has been one of the absolute BEST decisions I have made this year. Lower blood pressure. More time for *ME*. No more gnashing of teeth over all the stupid ass crap people post. When my wife mentions something she sees on FB, it is a good reminder that I am not missing a DAMN thing.

    No, they will censor any alternative media, but look, CNN IS the fake news.

    When you see A CNN fake news piece, report it. On their FB page that's what I do, screw them.

    Facebook knows taxation is theft and took down the IRS webpage after it was reported on Facebook. Theft breaks their community standards.

    When you see CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, etc. talk about "fake news", translate that as "a story that wasn't approved for distribution by the DNC."

    But when those outlets run a story, it must be real, right?

    I know, more Mark Dice. But it's pretty funny to hear Brian Williams uttering the phrase.

    Seriously, WTF? I would like to believe that folks have long ago starting ignoring this most irrelevant assclown, but I know that's a pretty stupid belief.
